Angkor’s ‘Tomb Raider’ trees will not be axed


Published on Aug 30, 2010

The famous trees at Cambodia’s Ta Phrom temple, in the Angkor complex, will not be cut down, the area’s conservation team has said. The trees, which featured prominently in the Angelina Jolie movie Tomb Raider, are intrinsically linked to the temple, local media reported the Archaeological Survey of India as saying. It had been rumoured that the trees would be cut down as part of the temple’s US$5 million restoration project.
